Spirit Works Rye Whiskey
Spirit Works's Rye is a true small-batch, high-rye whiskey that is milled, mashed, fermented, distilled, and aged on-site at the Spirit Works distillery in Sonoma County.
Each batch is aged for a minimum of four years in 53-gallon, charred, brand new American white oak barrels; it is non-chill filtered in order to preserve the full aromatic complexity of this remarkable American whiskey. Deliberate cuts during distillation ensure that this whiskey emerges from its time in barrel as a finely layered and truly distinguished spirit.
The nose shows bright, tart green apple giving way to autumnal notes of baked apple and coffee, followed by a woodsy aroma of cedar and leather. On the palate, peppery hints of clove and nutmeg enliven an alluring blend of caramel, vanilla, and toasted coconut. Finishes on sweet golden honeycomb rolls down to a smooth finish of warm spice. Bottled at 45% abv.
